Green rice and white asparagus.  Yes, a decidedly different dinner!

We tried out th Bamboo Green Rice tonight.  Way fun!  Taste is a bit difficult to describe…  definitely “rice” but an almost tea-like flavor from the bamboo.  Besides looking great, it tasted great.

I grilled a pork tenderloin and topped it with a fresh mango salsa…  Diced mango, minced jalapeño, minced onion, minced red pepper, cilantro, parsley, a squirt of lemon, salt & pepper.  I don’t recall the variety of mango other than it’s from Mexico and very yellow when ripe.  It had just the right amount of sweet and tart flavor.

The white asparagus was topped with diced tomato mixed with a bit of adobo sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo.

And Victor baked off the last of the brioche dough.

This batch of dough has definitely gotten a work-out.  I made it last Friday for hamburger buns on Sunday.  I made cinnamon apple rolls with it – twice – and then tonight’s sesame braid.

I’m going to have to get another batch going soon.
